VolunTeaming is now offered under The Ritz-Carlton social responsibility program, Community Footprints
. Transcending traditional group activities, VolunTeaming combines teambuilding with volunteer activities that create lasting memories for the participants. Recognizing that many groups want their teambuilding time to make a meaningful contribution, these programs enable guests to be a force for good and feel personally connected to the place that they visit.Literacy Teambuilding Event
This two-hour, team-building activity sheds light on the unfortunate reality that one in seven adults in the U.S. has literacy skills too low to read basic words and phrases found in children’s picture books, side effects on medications, or newspapers. The overall goal is to provide motivation and enthusiasm for reading in youth today via the assembly and donation of bookshelves for local educational facilities supporting children and literacy.
Teams of approximately eight to ten participants receive their “Library Card” with challenges and locations to visit to complete difference literacy-themed challenges, such as:
- Team Banagrams
- Alternative Book Names Challenge
- Character-Book Match Up
- Book Relay
Upon the completion of each challenge, library cards are stamped and teams inch closer to receiving all necessary materials to build one high-quality bookshelf.
